Thinking Out LoudPosted on March 10, 2016
Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ has become quite the popular song choice for first dances. Rightly so, it’s a romantic and beautiful song with lyrics that say ‘we found love right where we are.’ And have you seen the music video for this song? It’s a sexy, contemporary style dance performed by professional dancers with all sorts of challenging partnering and dance technique. Youtube shows us that many brides and grooms have copied and tried to recreate this dance on their own. We do not recommend this, you need Moore Choreography!
So when our awesome couple, Alta and Evan, decided to dance to ‘Thinking Out Loud,’ we made an original dance that was basic in structure but very entertaining and quite impressive. Neither of them had dance experience and wanted to keep it simple, so we did a slow cha cha pattern and added multiple flourishes of turns, lifts, and dips. Alta and Evan were determined to nail the dance and had great focus for practice in between lessons, plus they were so fun to work with! Their commitment made a huge difference as they were comfortable and confident to the point of being able to hold a conversation and smile while doing the steps. Alta and Evan looked amazing and we are so proud of the job they did!
Alta and Evan danced a fully choreographed piece that was beautiful and not overdone. A lot of couples write to us expressing hesitancy about doing a structured dance. Choreography does not have to be cheesy, stiff, or strained. Rather, choreography is a sequence of steps, a guideline to follow, patterns that go together to create a story or invoke an emotion. With preparation, you can look more natural, comfortable, and at your absolute best. We believe that dance lessons are just as necessary as the photographer, band, and flowers in order to complete your most memorable wedding day. And as Alta and Evan said, “The lessons were a lot of fun and the practice made our first dance even more special. I highly recommend using Moore Choreography!”
